Building Permits, April 2001
Part I – Analysis
Highlights
April 2001
• The value of building permits issued by municipalities
increased in April on the strength of substantial monthly
gains in commercial and institutional construction
projects. Builders took out $3.2 billion worth of building
permits, up 4.8% from March.
• A rebound in non-residential permits more than offset a
decline in the residential sector. Non-residential intentions
totalled $1.6 billion in April, up 16.6% from March, putting
a halt to a two-month decline.
• On the other hand, the value of housing permits declined
4.8% to $1.6 billion. This was the lowest level in the last
12 months, as construction intentions in both single-family
and multi-family components slowed.
• For the four-month period from January to April,
municipalities issued $13.5 billion in building permits, up
14.0% from the same period last year. It was also the
highest level for the first four months of any year since
1990, the result of advances in both the residential and
non-residential sectors.
• Most of the gain in the cumulative value came from the
Toronto and Montreal census metropolitan areas. In
Toronto, the increase was spread across all categories
in the residential and non-residential sectors. In Montreal,
the gain came largely from construction projects for office
buildings and plants.
Monthly Review
Declines in both single- and multi-family
components
• Building permits for multi-family dwellings in April totalled
$402 million, down 13.5% from March, while construction
intentions for single-family dwellings fell 1.5% to
$1.2 billion. It was the third consecutive monthly decline
in the value of permits for the single-family component,
which represents about three-quarters of the total
residential sector.
• Despite this result, the housing market remains active.
In April, housing starts were up 3.1%, sales of existing
homes increased and the stock of vacant dwelling units
was low. As well, employment levels remained high and
mortgage rates advantageous.
• At the provincial level, the largest decline (in dollar terms)
in residential permits occurred in Ontario (-8.9% to
$769 million), pushed down solely by the multi-family
component. In contrast, the largest increase occurred in
Alberta (+4.0% to $249 million).
• For the first four months of the year, municipalities issued
$7.2 billion in housing permits, up 8.4% from the same
period in 2000 and the best result for any January-toApril period since 1990. This gain was powered to a
large extent by advances in multi-family permits.
• Provincially, the largest gain on a year-to-date basis was
recorded in Ontario (+11.2% to $3.6 billion) with the
majority of the growth coming from the Toronto region.
In second place was British Columbia (+29.3% to
$919 million) in the wake of a substantial gain in multifamily permits in the Vancouver area. Nova Scotia
recorded the largest decline (-33.6% to $120 million) on
a year-to-date basis.
Rebound in non-residential projects
• April’s rebound in non-residential permits followed two
straight monthly declines, and was led by institutional
and commercial intentions.
• Declining vacancy rates for office and commercial
buildings in several major centres are consistent with the
higher non-residential building intentions in April. Low
interest rates, combined with good corporate profits last
year, should have a positive impact on the non-residential
sector.
• Institutional intentions increased 29.2% to $387 million,
the largest value since last October. Most of this activity
came from education projects where the increase more
than offset a decline in welfare and nursing home projects
and medical hospitals. The most significant increase (in
dollar terms) for institutional intentions was in British
Columbia, where the value of institutional projects far
more than doubled (+162.8%) to $94 million, the highest
value since June 1999.
• The value of commercial permits jumped 23.3% to
$904 million. Recreation projects and office buildings
showed the most significant increases. Ontario recorded
the largest growth, +34.9% to $313 million.
Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001 v
Building Permits, April 2001
• Only the industrial component showed a decline in April
(-9.1% to $308 million), pushed down by the utility and
transportation category. Following a strong month,
Alberta showed a decrease of 59.0% to $25 million. The
most significant increase in this component occurred in
Ontario (+18.9% to $133 million).
• Among the provinces, Ontario recorded the largest
increase in the non-residential sector (+21.0% to
$597 million) due to strong results in the Toronto region.
All three components showed gains. In contrast, following
a robust gain in March, Alberta recorded the most
significant decrease (-27.9% to $190 million).
vi Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
Powerful start in the non-residential sector
• On a year-to-date basis, municipalities issued $6.3 billion
in permits for the non-residential sector between January
and April, up 21.2% from the same four months of 2000.
• This hefty increase was fuelled mainly by the increase in
commercial construction intentions (+18.0% to $3.6 billion). Substantial increases in institutional intentions
(+29.6% to $1.3 billion) and industrial permits (+22.1%
to $1.4 billion) also contributed to the gain.
• On a year-to-date basis, the largest increases in nonresidential permits were incurred by Quebec (+60.5% to
$1.5 billion) and Ontario (+28.1% to $2.6 billion). Nova
Scotia (-54.1% to $81 million) recorded the largest
decline.

Building Permits, April 2001
Part IV – Methodology, Concepts and Data Dissemination
Introduction
The purpose of the monthly survey of building permits
issued by Canadian municipalities is to collect data on
construction intentions. The results of this survey are used
by C.M.H.C.1 as a reference base for conducting a monthly
survey of housing starts and completions in accordance
with its mandate. The statistics on building permits are also
essential for the computation of capital expenditures.
Furthermore, since the issuance of a building permit is one
of the first steps in the construction process, these statistics
are widely used as a leading indicator of building activity.
Survey Methodology
The Building Permits Survey covers all Canadian municipalities that issue permits. The number of Canadian municipalities currently surveyed exceeds 2,500, representing
all the provinces and territories. They account for 94% of
the Canadian population. Participation to the survey is
mandatory; the survey does not use a predetermined
sample of municipalities. In practice, all urban agglomerations are represented in the survey, as well as a fair
percentage of rural municipalities. With certain exceptions,
the minimum coverage corresponds to the municipalities
already included in the Housing Starts and Completions
C.M.H.C.’s Survey. Non-responding municipalities that issue
permits are urged on a regular basis to respond to the
Building Permit Sur vey. Therefore, the number of
municipalities covered is increasing continually.
Collection of Data
The survey is usually conducted by mail, although certain
municipalities choose to respond by telephone. The
municipal officer responsible for issuing permits is asked
to fill out a form2 each month describing all major construction projects. The value of the permits reported includes
the following expenditures: materials, labour, profit and
overhead. The cost of land is never included in the estimated
value of the permit while acquisition costs (legal fees,
surveying fees and accrued interest) may be included at
times.
The municipalities forward a copy of their completed report
to Statistics Canada Head Office and another copy to the
local office of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (C.M.H.C.). To reduce their overhead, an increasing
number of respondents are producing a computerized
report.
Reports from municipalities which one part of a census
metropolitan area or a census agglomeration must be
received within 20 days following the month of reference.
The other municipalities have 30 days to produce their
reports. Only those municipalities that are late in reporting
and that are included in the above-mentioned C.M.H.C.
survey are subject to follow-up by telephone.
The reports received at Statistics Canada Head Office are
verified, coded and processed.
Types of Errors
Since the building permit data are extracted from municipal administrative documents, two types of response
errors are possible: errors attributable to the permit applicant
and errors in transcription by the responding municipality.
However, experience has shown that transcription errors
are not very common and the increasing number of municipalities producing computerized reports tends to reduce
the frequency of this type of error. Errors attributable to a
false statement of the cost of construction are more probable. A qualitative survey conducted among major Canadian
municipalities has revealed an underestimation of the
declared value of buildings for which permits are issued.
Since permit fees are in most cases based on the value of
the construction, this leads unquestionably to underestimation of project values. The results of that survey also
reveal that, in half of the municipalities covered, the value
submitted by the applicant is not subject to any verification
by municipal officers.
Quality Control
Strict quality control procedures are applied to ensure that
collection, coding and data processing are as accurate as
possible. In addition to the usual checks to ensure that the
forms are fully completed, quality control procedures
established by the Business Survey Methods Division are
applied to the coded and processed data. Checks are also
performed on totals and the magnitude of data. Reports
that fail to meet the quality standards are subject to
verification and are corrected as required.

Building Permits, April 2001
Reliability
Imputations are required for each characteristic for which
no report has been received. These are calculated
automatically, subject to certain constraints, by applying to
previously used values, the mouth-to-mouth and year-toear changes in similar values of responding municipalities
and the historical pattern of the missing municipalities. No
imputation is done for lack of coverage, concealment or
the underevaluation of permits issued. For this reason, the
sampling error cannot be computed.
Comparison of data must be done with reservation considering that the methods of issuing permits and the methods
of estimating building values can differ from one municipality
to another. Also, comparisons involving different periods
must take into account the constant increase in the number
of municipalities participating in the survey.
The monthly statistics are not corrected for cancelled or
expired permits. According to the municipal officers, the
proportion of cancelled and unused permits is below 5%.
Nature of and Basis for Classification
The classification used in this publication deals strictly with
structures for which a building permit was issued. Permits
are generally issued for the following: construction of new
buildings, alterations, additions, renovations, etc. Minor
repair jobs such as painting, tiling, roofing, etc., for which
no permit is required, and engineering work (such as dams,
roads, pipelines, etc.), which, by definition, is not a building,
are not included in the building permit series. Estimates of
such work may be obtained from the publications Capital
expenditures by type of asset (cat. no. 61-223) and Private
and Public Investment in Canada Intentions (cat. no. 61-205).
The description given by the municipalities as to the type
of building (box #6 of Section A on the form) and the type
of work involved (box #7 of Section A on the form) forms
the basis for classification. The classification of buildings
into major groups and subgroups is based on the following:
intended use in the case of new buildings; present or
intended use of buildings to which improvements are to be
made; present use of the existing structure where the
proposed construction is intended to provide additional
facilities; principal use of the structure where the proposed
construction has more than one intended use; however,
where the building contains dwellings, the value of the
construction is divided between residential and nonresidential use.
value of permits issued for construction of new buildings
or for improvements: residential, industrial, commercial,
institutional and government.
Residential. Includes all buildings intended for private
occupancy whether on a permanent basis or not. Dwellings
are divided into the following types: single-family, mobile,
cottage, semi-detached, row house and apartment building.
Industrial. Includes all buildings used for manufacturing
and processing; transportation, communication and other
utilities, and agriculture, forestry and mining.
Commercial. Includes all buildings used to house activities
related to the tertiary sector, such as stores, warehouses,
garages, office buildings, theatres, hotels, funeral parlours,
beauty salons.
Institutional and Government. Includes expenditures
made by the community, public and government for buildings and structures like schools, universities, hospitals,
clinics, churches, homes for the aged.
The number of dwelling units indicates the number of
self contained dwelling units created. This should not be
confused with the number of structures. For example, an
apartment building containing six dwellings will be shown
as six dwelling units. When an existing structure is converted
into additional housing units, the number of units added is
included. This publication uses the following classification
for dwelling units:
Single-family. Refers to dwellings commonly called “single
house”. It includes single dwellings that are completely
isolated on all sides, including single dwellings linked to
other dwellings below ground. Included are bungalows, split
levels, two-storey single-family homes built by conventional
methods or prefabricated.
Mobile homes. Refers to houses designed and constructed
to be transported on their own chassis and for easy moving.
Cottage. Refers to dwellings that cannot be occupied
year-round or on a permanent basis because the facilities
required for comfort are inadequate.
Double or Semi-detached. Refers to dwellings in which
each of the two dwellings are side by side and joined by a
common wall or garage, but not attached to any other
building and surrounded by open space.
Building Categories
Row Dwellings. Refers to a row of three or more dwellings
attached to each other without dwellings above or below.
This publication, uses the following classification for the
Apartment Building. Includes dwellings in a variety of
18 Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
Building Permits, April 2001
buildings such as duplexes, semi-detached duplexes,
triplexes, row duplexes, apartments as such and dwellings
adjacent to non- residential structures.
–
Rural Area: Refers to all geographic entities not included
in a CMA or CA and not identified as an urban centre
by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
Conversion. Refers to the number of dwellings added by
conversion of existing structures.
–
Census Subdivision (CSD): Refers to the general term
applying to municipalities, Indian reserves, Indian
settlements and unorganized territories. However, since
Indian reserves and settlements do not issue building
permits, they are not included in this publication.
–
Non-standard Geographic Unit: The geographic units
shown in this publication do not all satisfy the above
definition of census subdivision. Some provincial or
municipal administrations producing monthly reports do
not correspond to the official geographic entities; they
are nevertheless shown in this publication under the
geographic entity used by these administrations. These
so-called non-standard geographic units are few in number and are mostly concentrated in the Maritime provinces; e.g. ‘Commission d’urbanisme de Madawaska’,
Greater Moncton District, Acadian Peninsula, etc.
Geographic Classification
Geographic entities are classified according to Standard
Geographical Classification (SGC) used by Statistics
Canada. Each reporting entity is assigned a twelve-digit
SGC code for identification according to the following
geographic levels:
–
Province and Territory (PR) : There are ten provinces
and three territories.
–
Economic Region (ER): Refers to intraprovincial
regions established by the Standards Division of
Statistics Canada. There are seventy-six ERs.
–
Census Division (CD): Refers to a group of census
subdivisions established by provincial law. There are
two hundred and ninety-four CDs (data on this
geographic group is available on request).
–
–
–
Census Metropolitan Area (CMA): Its delineation
corresponds to the 1996 Census definition. The term
CMA refers to the main labour market area of an urban
area (the urbanized core) of at least 100,000 population,
based on the Census population figures. The twenty-five
CMAs are shown in this publication. Although the 1996
Census defines the Ottawa-Hull area as a single CMA,
the area is shown in this publication as two separate
entities since it is located in two different provinces.
Census Agglomeration (CA): Refers to the smaller
labour market area of an urbanized core of at least
10,000 population, as defined by the 1996 Census.
There are one hundred and seventeen CAs in Canada.
When a CA overlaps the boundaries of two provinces,
it is shown partly in each province. The Lloydminster
agglomeration is an exception to this rule. It is treated
as if it was totally located in Alberta.
Other Municipalities of at Least 10,000 Population:
Refers to municipalities not included in census agglomerations but with populations of at least 10,000 inhabitants. The distinction is made between these
municipalities and CAs in order to permit comparison
between the Building Permits Survey and the Housing
Starts and Completions Survey which refers to this
geographical concept.
Territorial Revisions
Territorial boundaries were established according to the
1996 Census definitions. Changes in boundaries, status or
name of census subdivisions between censuses are
introduced in this publication on a yearly basis. Changes
affecting the other geographic units (CMAs, CAs, CDs and
ERs) are introduced every five years, eighteen months
following the census.
Revision of Data
Two types of revisions can affect the results of the Building
Permits Survey:
(1) Revisions Due to the Correction of Coding Errors
These types of revisions are done on a monthly basis
only to the data pertaining to the month preceding the
reference period.
(2) Revisions Due to the addition of Late Reports
Late reports for the month preceding the reference
period are incorporated into the survey results on a
continuing basis. However, reports received after the
two-month deadline following the reference month are
introduced only at the end of the year. As a result, the
data for the last twelve months are subject to revision.
Adjustment for Seasonality
Seasonally adjusted data for the total number of housing
units as well as for the aggregate value of building permits
are obtained indirectly, i.e., by adding their seasonally
adjusted components. The total number of dwelling units is
Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001 19
Building Permits, April 2001
obtained by summing the seasonally adjusted data for
single-family and multiple-use units; the total value of building permits is obtained by summing the following elements:
residential, industrial, commercial and institutional. Some
series contain no apparent seasonality. In these cases,
unadjusted values have been tabulated and agregated to
the adjusted values of the other series.
At the end of the year, the chronological series adjusted
for seasonality are revised to take into account the most
recent seasonal fluctuations. These revisions apply only to
the last three years in the series. The revised data are
introduced into the CANSIM databank .
